Mt Elbert

Travis and I day-hiked the East route of Mt Elbert today. Normally, this hike takes 4-5 hours to summit, but we somehow managed to stretch it out to 7+ hours. I found this hike to be much easier aerobically than our Mt. Harvard hike last year as I was rarely out of breath, but I imagine that it is due more to my extended acclimation and on the CT prior to this hike rather than the actual terrain.
